Felters’ Fling offers a unique venue, where feltmakers gather from North America and abroad. Felters’ Fling celebrates the diversity of feltmaking techniques and the artists who create them. With nine 2, 3 and 5 day workshops to choose from, there will be new techniques to learn, new ideas to ponder and time to hone your newly learned skills in a collaborative environment where camaraderie and creativity flourish.
The tradition of Felters’ Fling continues by bringing an all-star line-up of acclaimed instructors. The wide variety of techniques offered include garment making, ancient dyeing methods melded with modern style and natural materials, wet felted sculpture, elegant design, finishing and detailing techniques for cuffs, collars and shawls, complex geometric textural surface design and meditative stitch and embellishment.
Silver Bay YMCA – Conference and Family Retreat Center on the shores of Lake George is the ideal location for Felters’ Fling. With spacious studio space for workshops, artist talks, exhibition, fashion show and vendors, access to Silver Bay’s waterfront campus, gym facilities, walking paths and historic buildings, our time will be filled with possibility. Perhaps you will want to bring family or friends to Silver Bay to enjoy the amenities while you create!
